    Re: SPYGATE TWO..........



    In an echo of the New England Patriots' "Spygate" scandal, the NFL is investigating whether a Broncos employee videotaped a San Francisco 49ers walk-through at London's Wembley Stadium four weeks ago.

    Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis confirmed Friday that Steve Scarnecchia, the team's director of video operations, is on a "personal leave of absence" while team and league officials investigate the matter, but he declined to comment further. Scarnecchia did not travel with the team to San Diego last weekend and has not been at the team's Dove Valley complex this week.

    The Broncos are actively working with the NFL on the investigation, according to team sources. Reached at his home Friday, Scarnecchia declined to

    comment. League spokesman Greg Aiello also declined to comment. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels could not reached for comment Friday afternoon.


    McDaniels and Scarnecchia both previously worked for the Patriots, Scarnecchia between 2001 and 2005 and McDaniels between 2001 and 2009 before being hired by the Broncos. In 2007, the Patriots were found to have videotaped New York Jets coaches sending in signals during a game between the two teams, which is against league rules.

    Following a league investigation, commissioner Roger Goodell stripped the Patriots of their first-round pick in the 2008 draft. He also fined the Patriots $250,000 and fined Patriots coach Bill Belichick $500,000.

    McDaniels hired Scarnecchia to run the Broncos' video operations shortly after he accepted the job in January 2009.

    Upon his formal introduction as the team's 12th head coach, McDaniels was asked about the effect of "Spygate" on his candidacy for the job, as well as whether either Broncos owner Pat Bowlen or Ellis asked him about Spygate during either of his two interviews with team officials.

    At that time McDaniels said: "That situation was something that happened. I was not aware of that. I wasn't aware of it and all the things that did happen in terms of that whole scenario. It really didn't affect us, to tell you the truth. It was all about preparation and trying to do whatever we felt was best that week. It really didn't have anything to do with that.

    "I don't think it is good. To have that kind of attention was a distraction, and I think that is how we all treated it. We tried to do the best we could to limit those distractions every week, and it will be no different here. Certainly we are never looking to do anything that is not within the rules established by the National Football League. They determined the punishment on that, and it was what it was and we moved on."

    The NFL's current investigation revolves around practices held by the Broncos and the 49ers on Saturday, Oct. 30, in Wembley Stadium. Both teams were allotted time to hold walk-through practices at the stadium that day. It was the only time while the two teams were in England that they would have used the same facility to practice on the same day. Teams normally bar anyone not associated with the team from watching practice. Taping another team's practice could result in a severe penalty from the NFL.

    The next day the 49ers defeated the Broncos, 24-16. Denver enters Sunday's game against St. Louis at 3-7.

    Scarnecchia continued to perform his usual day-to-day duties after the team's return from London but was not on the team's chartered flight to San Diego last Sunday and has not been seen on the practice field this week.

    U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, in a statement on the Senate floor dated May 14, 2008, made specific references to Scarnecchia regarding what he termed "extensive videotaping of opponents' offensive and defensive signals" by the Patriots between 2000 and 2007. Specter was relating interviews he had with a former Patriots employee, Matt Walsh.

    The NFL punished the Patriots only for the specific videos made against the Jets.

    Re: SPYGATE TWO..........

    May I ask a question?

    What is with the term "investigation"? Either someone is standing there filming their practice and it was proven to be true at the time or it wasn't.

    All it takes is one rube to spread a rumor .

    This better be true, because this is slander.  You can't just run around accusing people of things that may cost them their job.

    I still think Kraft should have taken down the Herald on principle alone for the media lies about the SB 36 Walkthrough.

    Almost smells like someone is trying to get McDaniels fired.

    Re: SPYGATE TWO..........

    Yeah, I find it very strange that there needs to be an "investigation" other than simply witnessing something illegal or simply checking any security tape.

    Without either, I am not sure how you can prove it.

    Very strange. This game happened a month ago. smells.

    McDaniels is in over his head and I figured he'd struggle with fans being irrational and not being patient waiting to build what Shanahan ruined in the GM seat, but these are people's careers here.

    You just don't walk around lying in order to prop yourself up or someone else down.

    Adding insult to injury if this turns out to be true is that the Broncos lost the game.

    the funny thing is, does anybody think this stuff really came to an end in 2007, i'm sure there are teams still doing it.

    the thing i always hated about it, they made the patriots the poster boy for this, when it was running rampant by many other teams.

    thanks rat

    Well the Broncos got busted but apparently Josh McDaniels refused to view the videotape in question.  So they get to keep their first round pick.  Personally I think recording a walk through practice is worse than videotaping signals.  Roger Goodell's inconsistency at punishments is astounding.

    I too want their pick taken like ours was.  But I am guessing this will just disappear with a fine.  After all, the Pats didnt do it, so no one cares.

    haha if u read the comments of the losers on profootballtalk, 75% of the comments are hate towards the patriots from this BRONCOS article. its hilarious.
    fans of other teams still go all the way back to those alligations of stealing signals to discredit the patriots. i couldnt give a damn wat those morons think, but its sad how dumb the nfl fanbase can be.

    believe me, if the national media has anything to do with it, they will spin this against our Patriots. and BB will use it as more fuel to the fire.

    Taping a practice is certainly illegal. The NFL would probably need to produce tapes to make anything stick. The Denver Broncos have been accused of watching practices before and nothing ever stuck because they couldn't produce any evidence.

    If they do, I would love to see what the fine is....
